Create a Mini Pond

Enjoy your own mini pond with an Aquascape Patio Pond. Patio Ponds include a shelf for plants and small fish can be added to create a beautiful, miniature water garden! Add a fountain spitter to incorporate the sound of flowing water to your mini pond.

Try a Smaller Water Garden

The Aquatic Patio Pond Kit or AquaGarden Mini Pond Kit make it simple to have a small water garden anywhere you can imagine. They are even small enough to fit on top of your patio table!

Enhance Your Mini Pond

Once your mini pond is built, you can add fish and plants as well as other decorative elements like bamboo spitters and lights. Koi are not recommended to be added to mini ponds, but guppies and rosy reds are the perfect size! If you add fish to a Patio Pond, a Container Water Garden Filter will need to be included.
